“His publisher and friend, William Jovanovich, and Judith A. Schiff of Yale University Library where the Lindbergh papers reside, have organised the book from an enormous body of materials written over many years in many places, and entrusted to his publisher only a few days before the flyer’s death in 1974, at age 72.”
